The Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul will host the Champions League final for a second time in 2020.

Istanbul was chosen over Lisbon by the UEFA executive committee, which will also decide in September whether Turkey or Germany should host the 2024 European Championship.

The 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul produced one of the competition's most memorable matches. Liverpool trailed 3-0 at halftime against AC Milan, but leveled midway through the second half and won a penalty shootout.

The 2020 Europa League final will be played in Gdansk, Poland, while the Super Cup between the Champions League and Europa League winners will be at Estadio do Dragao in Portugal.

The women's Champions League final will be staged at Austria Arena in Vienna.
